This week I had my identity stolen. After dealing with too much paperwork and banks – I really needed to rock out and shake the blahs… so we did. Wire, Neverever, King Khan, the Dictators, Primus (A friend posted the video for ‘too many puppies” and it was stuck in my head), Mika Miko, Melvins, Ubran Junior,the Jam, Cheap Trick, Male Bonding, the Buzzcocks, because i missed the show this week..!
Our guest this morning spoke about making machines out of traditional percussion instruments, then creating a glove he can use as a remote control for his mechanized musical ensemble. Keep up with Jazari at his web site: www.jazarimusic.com:http://www.jazarimusic.com. We also heard new Tracey Thorn, Rachid Taha, and The Very Best as they got ready to play the Cedar Cultural Center:http://www.thecedar.org that night.
It’s our last Monday night here on Jet Set Planet. That’s right, we’re packing up all the crates of vinyl, the 45s, the compact discs, the downloads, and we’re moving to Friday nights at 9 starting June 4th. So tonight, it’s time to celebrate our last Monday of Jet Set Planet. And what a way to celebrate — we’re not playing records from the dollar bin, no sirree. We’re playing records but from the .50 cent bin! We’ll sample the Explosive Vocal Percussion(?) of Myrna March, the African Sounds of Carl Stevens, the Bongo instruction expertise of Jack Burger, and the production library prowess of the Glen Somers Orchestra. PLUS your gonna enjoy an extended double set of tunes from the adult cinema of the early 1970s near the end of the program.
